40 Year Building Safety Inspection Program Broward County.
In Miami-Dade County the 40 Year Recertification program was established in the mid 1970, and the program calls for elect and structural safety home inspections for buildings 40 years old or older and every ten years thereafter.
The 40 Year Building Recertification Inspection of Real Estate property is performed by a Professional Engineer.
One and two family dwellings, U.S Government, Florida buildings, schools under the jurisdiction of the B.C. School Board, and buildings built on Indian Reservations are exempt from this 40-Year Recertification program.
The 40 year Building Safety Inspection Program was created in 2005 and has become effective throughout Broward County in January 2006.
Broward program excludes all buildings under 3,500 SF.
Both Counties have had instances of structural building failures.
By having such a program in effect we are minimizing the possibilities of future building failure and will be better prepared for hurricane wind.
The Real Estate Property required Recertification report will state if the building or property under consideration appears to be safe for the specified use and continue occupancy.
AHM is a State of Florida authorized company with Local Business License to offer and perform engineering and inspection services.
The Professional Engineer / architect performing the Inspection (structural and/or electrical inspection) will attest the results to the best of his/her knowledge, belief and professional judgment and based on the conditions observed on the date of the inspection.
Destructive tests will not be performed in the 40-Year Inspection.
40 Year Inspection Report include electrical and structural inspections, level of illumination in the parking lots and compliance with guardrail for parking lots adjacent or abutting a body of water.
Each Forty 40 Year Building Recertification Report must state:
"As a routine matter, and in order to avoid possible misunderstanding, nothing in this Report, attached Minimum Inspection Guideline and our Non-Destructive Observations, should be construed directly, or indirectly, as guaranteed or warranted for any portions of the structure. To the best of my knowledge and ability, this report represents an accurate appraisal of the present condition of the structure, based upon careful evaluation of observed conditions, to the extent reasonably possible."
The Miami-Dade County notice of required Recertification is sent to the property owner when the building has been in existing for more than 40 years and every 10 years thereafter and owner has 90 days to submit the report.
Miami-Dade County Single family homes, duplexes, townhouses and other building or structure with an occupant load of ten (10) or less and 2,000 square feet or less are exempted.
Also nonresidential buildings on farms are exempted.
40 Year Certification report is required to be submitted to the local government building official (BO) within 90 days or a notice of code violations might be issued without further notice and building can be reported as unsafe for initiation of condemnation process.
In the event that repairs or modifications are found to be necessary resulting from the Building Report, the owner shall have a total of 180 days from the date of the Building Report, unless otherwise specified by the BO in accordance with Florida Building Code in which to correct the structural and electrical deficiencies that pose an immediate threat to life, health, safety or where failure of a critical component is imminent.
